Wildcats Win In OT

Hits: 0

On Sunday night the Arizona Wildcats narrowly escaped eliminated against the TCU Horned Frogs.  The reigning National Champion Baylor Bears became the first 1 seed to lose on Saturday, and Sunday it almost happened again as TCU took the Pac-12 team to Overtime.

Arizona playmaking guard, Bennedict Mathurin posted a highlight reel dunk, but more importantly pushed the game to an extra period with a late three pointer.  Mathurin carried the Wildcats with 30 points on the night in the 85-80 win.  The 9 seed Horned Frogs did all they could to upset the 1 seed, as Chuck O’Bannon Jr. had a career high with 23 points.

Ultimately overcoming the challenge Arizona moved on to the Sweet 16, and face Houston, last year’s runner’s up on Thursday.
